Headache And Other Head Pain, now familiarly known as Wolff's Headache, first appeared in 1948 as a monograph by the headache pioneer Harold Wolff. Following his death after the second edition, several prominent editors have guided it into today's comprehensive, multiauthored format. Wolff's Headache has long been considered a “bible” of headache medicine, and the current edition strives to maintain, even strengthen, that position. The editors have assembled a stellar cast of today's preeminent specialists, each writing on his or her particular area of expertise. The editors are to be commended for recruiting this pantheon, and for keeping their contributions generally consistent and readable over the length of the book.
